The #1 New York Times bestselling series returns with a story as up-to-date as the headlines.

The novels of W. E. B. Griffin featuring Delta Force officer Charley Castillo and his band of troubleshooters have won wide praise for their realism, action, and "punchy prose that connects like a right hook" (Chicago Tribune).

Now, still in Argentina tying up loose ends from his investigation into the UN oil-for-food scandal, Castillo is startled when a young man is marched into his office at gunpoint, caught trying to sneak through the fence. It turns out he's an American officer, a lieutenant assigned to the embassy in Paraguay. A key agent for the DEA has disappeared while trying to interdict drugs and very little is being done about it, for phony diplomatic reasons. The lieutenant's heard of Castillo, knows what he's done, and wants his help in getting the agent back. More than that, he's got an innovative plan for dealing with the drug lords themselves.

Intrigued, Castillo gets permission to try it, but the President has just one warning for him: Don't get caught. Charley couldn't agree more-but it might turn out to be something easier said than done. . . .

Filled with Griffin's trademark rich characters and cutting-edge drama, this is an exceptional novel by “a writer of true virtuosity and talent” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram).

Listener Opinions

    " I am addicted to this series and I liked this one just as much. There is so much build up for book five that The Shooters was no where near as action packed but the character developments was huge. I am very interested in where WEB Griffin is going to take this series and I hope that the butt-whoopings will continue in the next installment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 2/4/2014

    " This is generally not my kind of book. Probably better for people that enjoy military/spy books, and for people who know the characters well from his other books. However, I listened to the whole thing (books on CD) and did enjoy many parts of it and found the characters entertaining. I couldn't follow a long with some of the military talk and it was somewhat long, but I still liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 1/18/2014

    " Castillo is some kind of person. Griffin is one great author. A very well written store, like all his books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 1/17/2014

    " A fun, empty brain, historical fiction about CIA activities in South America. W.E.B Griffin is a former military man himself and therefore has a great deal of insight into how the military works. Weaves a pretty good story and, as I said, great reading for "idle brain" function. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debie Orrell | 1/13/2014

    " Loves the way Griffin pulls you into the stories with the Tech information that is just way beyond my experience, but very typically what is out there and being used. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Ostro | 12/26/2013

    " Great read , but could have been condensed into 400 pages rather than 700, a lot of unnecessary filler "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan | 12/16/2013

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and would consider reading more from W.E.B Griffin since I've always loved a special ops thriller. I do hold reservation to the very frequent use of (what I consider) excessive profanity. Examples: J__ C___, d___, f___, g__ d___, etc. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindyplanchard | 5/5/2013

    " Humorous, suspenseful and fits the possibly terror threats we face today perfectly! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawn | 3/19/2013

    " I read this whole series and I thought it was good but not great. The characters were awesome but sometimes it seemed like I'd read 100 pages and nothing would happen. Also, the transition from book to book was awkward, which isn't a complaint I have about Griffin's Brotherhood of War series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 3/16/2013

    " Refer to review of "The Hunters" from same series. "

    " A DEA agent is kidnapped in Argentina. He has relatives who are members of the Chicago police force and are powerful friends of the mayor. The president tasks Charley Castillo with rescueing the agent despite all sorts of roadblocks put in his way. "

    " I've read most of w.e.b.'s books, and this was the worst. How can you have a book called the shooters and have 1 page of shooting? The book was all about politics in the army = boring. Also very repetitive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 4/3/2012

    " I really like the Argentina setting and after so many griffin novels I read, I still like his writing and the history he brings forth on WWII . "

    " I was introduced to Mr. Griffin's work with theis book. I hadn't read any of his other works, and was intrigued by the cover of this book. I have since read all the other books in this series with the exception of the last one, book 7 "Covert Warriors". Hope to get & read it soon! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan | 10/26/2009

    " Great buildup, quick resolution, but who am I kidding? If Griffin wrote a 10,000 page book, I would sit and read it, and ask for another when I finished it. "

    " Personally, I love series books.
    Anytime you can follow characters through several books you become more engaged with them with each reading.
    The Shooters added some interesting elements to Lt. Colonal Costillos life. A good read. "

    " Four pages of action.
    23 pages of intrigue.
    458 pages of travel arrangements.
    Fun drinking game, though. Take a shot of Famous Grouse every time someone smiles and shakes their heads, says "Jesus Christ!" or establishes their worldliness by turning the tv to Fox News. "
